We stopped here (was one of the stops on a tour we were taking) mainly to take our picture by the LOVE sign. There are folks walking around offering to take your picture; however, we just asked the people behind us to take our picture and we took a few for them. Go earlier in the day because the sun...

There is usually a person there offering to take your picture at the LOVE statue with your camera for you. As a couple it was great to have someone offer to do that instead of having to ask someone. All you have to do is tip them $1. It is worth the buck, because they will take 3-4 pictures of... More

We stumbled upon this park while walking around downtown and its a cute little area that they have cleaned up with a gorgeous fountain perfect for pictures. The small LOVE statue is the main attraction as a line was formed to take pictures so allow for a few minutes if you would like one. Beautiful downtown buildings and architectures surround... More

I was passing through the area and unintentionally saw this park. A huge pink water fountain and the much smaller LOVE statue was the attraction. I personally like water to be clear, like nature intended. The floor tiles were shaky to walk on. It was nice to see it, but it was not inviting enough for me to stop. Average... More

Basically just a place to take photos and relax. Cute park near City Hall, the fountain is beautiful when it's on. Don't be surprised if you see homeless people penny pinching in the water.

Nice little park tucked away in downtown Philly. It makes for a great photo op. Nice fountain and skyline backdrop. Great mix of people and enjoyed having some food trucks nearby. The view from the park down Benjamin Franking Parkway to the Museum of Art is spectacular with all the green trees.

If visiting Philly, you have to see it. Go during the day and beware of the scammers & crazies. Occasionally there are radical protestors, just use common sense & watch surroundings.

It's true there isn't a lot to do here other than sit by the fountain or have your photo taken by the 'Love' statue but sometimes that's enough! At the end of a long day sightseeing it was a place to go to reflect, feel the cool spray from the fountain and watch the world go by. There are some... More
